AB 2098 hearing held yesterday, no result yet, but we are very, very hopeful

(Man with shades outside Sacramento Federal Courthouse after oral argument in the challenges to AB 2098) We had the hearing on our challenge (and the companion challenge filed by a high-profile Washington D.C. public interest group) yesterday afternoon. It was a very lively event. And because it was me, there were many lighter moments and even some robust laughter with some back-and-forth banter between us and the judge. Not so much with the Attorney General and the judge. And that…

As I’ve stated in many of my AB 2098 posts, there will be several lawsuits challenging AB 2098. The first one was filed a couple of days ago. The plaintiffs are a psychiatrist who is already under investigation for public Covid misinformation to the public. The other plaintiff is a well-known physician activist who has a concierge practice in Orange country.

AB 2098, some final thoughts before the Governor does what he’s going to do

AB 2098, some final thoughts before the Governor does what he’s going to do

I’ve read that Governor Newsom has over 500 bill sitting on his desk waiting for his signature. One of them is AB 2098, which would make it a disciplinable offense for a physician to provide a patient with advice or treatment recommendations not consistent with the mainstream ever-changing and often backtracking Covid narrative. I and many others have written much about the bill and why it’s a bad idea. And of course, I have sued the Medical Board for its…

Medical Board for starting an unconstitutional investigation against a Cali physician based on a complaint about his public comments during a school board Zoom meeting. You’ll recall that the Federation of State Medical Board back in July, 2021 called for its member boards to pursue its licensees for speaking out against the mainstream Covid narrative. Back in February 2022, Board President Kristina Lawson, JD announced…
